Progress on Flight of Swallows and Quilt Group

made it to my quilt group, Northeast Quilting Friends, for the second time in a row.  This is a big thing, as I haven't been there in months.  These ladies are prolific, at least some of them are.  They've found adouble secret quilter that does beautiful quilting for 40.00 a quilt-feathers, stippling everything-well worth it.  Every now and then one of the ladies brings several quilts from the group up to her.  Now, I must say, I've known cheaper quilters, my mom has someone that does it for 22.00 a quilt, but, it's loops, but hey it gets them finished and unless you are entering a contest or maybe a special family heirloom, it's really worth it.  I've heard of people passing away with their treasured quilter secret.  So the fact that they ladies would probably run me off if I shared this woman's name, is not beyond the realm of the quilt world.  

Here's my progress on the Flight of Swallows.  I went to quilting today, and don't have too much to show for it.  Besides the quilt meetings turning into a gabfest most of the time, we left a little early to check out the new Joann's in Louisville.  As far as I'm concerned our quilt shops don't have anything to worry about, as the fabric is less that quilt shop quality, in my opinion.  But, you know, maybe if they have some really good sales, I'll be back.  

Happy Quilting!

Kind of like Grandma's secret cookie ingredient . . . you just can't let some information out into the universe *s*

I am regularly disappointed with what is available at Joanns. I usually have a hard time spending my coupon...

(I "only" but novelty prints there fabrics wise.)

Those are some beautiful quilts. Looks like a very talented group! Thanks for the report on the Jo-Anns. My daughter and I have stopped by a couple of times but it wasn't open yet. Now I know we don't need to rush back over there!But I'm sure we'll have to check it out sometime. Have a good day!
